Starting Monday, February 16, 2009, Chez Pascal will be offering The Market Menu in addition to our regular menu on Mondays.
Inspired by the fantastic overwhelming success of the Saturday Winter Farmers' Market in Pawtucket, we thought it would be exciting to create menu items based solely on what we can get directly from the Market and/or the farmers themselves.
This is not to say that we don't source locally as a rule anyway, but we are bound by supply, seasons and basic products to make sustaining an entire menu based on this notion difficult.
The items on The Market Menu will only be offered on Mondays for this reason with a few exceptions sourced elsewhere... salt, pepper, spices, flour, stocks & olive oil. As the season changes and more items become available, the menu will expand. And who knows, with a little luck and ingenuity The Market Menu may evolve into the only menu on Mondays. Now that is progress.
Kicking this menu off in Winter certainly provides its own challenges, but we do love a good, fun, healthy challenge!
The unpredictability of nature will keep us patient and humble.
Supplying only when it is ready, and when it is gone it is gone.
Please come out and see what our good earth is making.
STARTING MONDAY, FEBRUARY 16TH
